National Youth Disability Summit – What young people with disability said – NDIS Position Paper

Text: What young people said.

“The NDIS doesn’t recognise [my condition]. There would be a lot of supports that would definitely help me and help me manage my energy I have, but I’m not able to access it because it’s very, very difficult for me or other people with [my condition] to get access to the NDIS.”

While the NDIS has great potential to offer people new and positive opportunities, there are still a lot of kinks to work out before many people with disability can benefit from the Scheme. In this paper, young people talk about what is working and not working in the NDIS, and what needs to change.
